Kris is said to be planning to auction off the big ol' diamond ring he gave Kim in an upcoming Christie's auction adequately named Bright & Beautiful.

The 28-year-old basketball player has yet to publicly reveal his plans to sell the Lorraine Schwartz rock, but a 16 carat ring matching the description of KK's bling has appeared on the auction list and is expected to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000.

The sum is less than a quarter of what the ring was believed to have originally cost, but what was he expecting? A tainted ring is sure to lose its value. After all the bad press following the couple's divorce lasted longer than their 72-day marriage.
